Statue City Cruises, the only authorized ferry service to the Statue of Liberty National Monument and Ellis Island, announced today the resumption of New Jersey service and extended operating hours beginning March 11.  

Beginning Saturday morning, March 11, Statue City Cruises will now have boats departing from Battery Park in lower Manhattan and Liberty State Park in Jersey City, NJ between 9:00 AM and 3:30 PM daily. The final return trips from the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island 5:00 pm and 5:15 pm.  

The expanded operating hours come as Statue City Cruises sees higher levels of ridership, especially with the October 2022 reopening of the Crown of the Statue of Liberty.
